Avoid Like the Plaque

Staff and Manager not trustworthy and unable to rectify a incompatible room for a two nite stay which was pre-paid for $170.00. This staff is not trustworthy >they should be taken off this sites referral list , which to date, has not been done. This is a one star hotel that I would advise to "AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE" STAY AWAY from this place since they do not honor the room rate with an acceptable room or accommodation as promised for the International Traveler

NICE AND CLEAN HOTEL

The hotel is located in a good place, but has a problem taxis are not be able to drop you off in front of the hotel. You have to walk and carry your own luggage, because the street is closed. They gave us a nice room close to the elevator and the reception, you were not be able to sleep because every time the phone ring at the reception you can hear it at the room, also y if someone talk at the elevator or when up and down you hear the elevator. The owner is a nice gentlemen, but the lady that work for him on the front desk she was not nice, at all.

disappointed .........................

when we arrived at this hotel for check in , there was no room available eventhough we had reserved online and all paid in advance. they send us to the hotel next door which is way inferior. the hotel manager made us pay for occupancy taxes claiming that our online reservation does not included in it. the room is very small n not clean.

Just Good location

The hotel has a great location, however some members of the staff were not very friendly. The breakfast wasn't good at all and the bread was old. There was a air conditioning in the room but the control didn't work since it was controlled by the hotel's staff. The hotel has a weird smell and the internet connection is not free and is not very good (we had very bad reception in our room).

Wonderful Location & Great Front Desk

The room was large and very quiet. The location is excellent. We were able to walk to all of the amazing sites within the City. Good food and entertainment were also close at hand. Florence has lots of water, and as a result, also has plenty of mosquitoes. Expect them in your room if the windows are opened. Our room experienced its fair share of mosquitoes before we arrived as evidenced by all of the bodies smashed on the walls and ceilings. If you are looking for a late-night protein infusion, then this might be appealing. For ambience, the mosquitoe guts were a distraction. Breakfast offerings are good, but get in early. Some of the guests empty the bread, meat and cheese preparing lunches for their daily adventures and wipe out breakfast for the rest. VERY ODD! Also, the coffee and juice machines dispense one cup at a time, so be patient. The woman who runs the breakfast room can be cranky, but considering some of the guests, it might be understandable. Be patient and smile, they really have a lovely place in a terrific location. Just a couple of little annoyances.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are unaware of the parking restrictions in the City Center of Florence, then get the facts. We found out that the area in front of the hotel is reserved for pedestrian traffic. When we arrived, there were no chains up and no signs indicated the situation. Local parking around the pretty park is reserved for residents of the area (some pay for the privilege)and are not open to tourists. You might receive a warning if you are around, a ticket or may even have your vehicle towed. Metered parking is just a couple of blocks away and the hotel does utilize a local garage, but at a price. Ask the front desk staff before you park.
